The midfielder has been linked with a move to Liverpool and is well liked by their manager Jurgen Klopp.

McGinn’s performances at Euro 2020 haven’t gone unnoticed with former Manchester City star Yaya Toure picking him out as someone who impressed in the draw with England.

At the weekend, it was reported the 26-year-old was a £20million target for the Anfield club.

Aston Villa however, value their player at between £45m-£50million, according to The Athletic.

Such a sale would see Hibs come into some serious cash having sold the player for £2.75million three years ago, a deal which included a sell-on clause.

The Easter Road club stand to make 15 per cent of what McGinn is sold for, however 30 per cent of that would go to St Mirren.

A £50million deal would net Hibs a cool £5.25million after the Buddies get their slice.
